Older adults needed for study on loneliness

 posted by | 03/01/2019

Researchers at the School of Life Sciences and School of Psychology are undertaking a new study looking at reducing feelings of loneliness in older adults (60 years or older).

What will participants have to do?
1. observe varied images (e.g. animals, objects, abstract) on a screen, while a camera records your eye movements;

2. provide saliva samples into a tube to measure a chemical associated with sociability;

3. fill out a couple of questionnaires on life views;

4. wear a heart rate monitor around your chest;

5. play a game on a computer.

The study takes place at the University of Lincoln and takes between 1h and 1h30.
